Future Floor Wax
Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, April 1, 2003 2:26 PM
I like using Future Floor Wax, but at times feel it's a bit to thick.
Is there a good thinner for Future Floor Wax? If so, what would be the ratio of thinner to wax? Thanks in advance

Try one part Tamiya acrylic thinner to 4 parts Future. It is an acrylic and not an actual wax, so it will react well with the Tamiya thinner. Generally, I use the Future with no thinner at all. If you are using an airbrush, try spraying at a slightly higher psi. This might help. If not, try the thinner, but go easy on it.

I find that the best(and cheapest!) way to thin acrylics(including Future) is plain ole' tap water. Distilled water would probably have the same effect. Acrylics are "waterbased" and "water washup", so I geuss it makes sense to just use water!(MUCH cheaper than buying special made thinners!)

I used alcohol 1:4 and reduced a bit the preasure and works well ,the only trouble is to know when to stop because the drops or have on hand a tisue to gently absorb the exedent ( Coffe Filter works well)....another be prepared with a solution of Amonia or Windex for clean the airbrush inmediately, a single action airbrush works better!...Another is very important to spent time between the hands of future at less 8 hours, aparently it cures rapidly but if you don't spent this time can apears receses like craks in the surface and another session of sanding will be expecting You!

Thanks very much. I have given each of your suggestions a try and quite frankly, found a little bit of thinner (either water or alcohol) works ok. And you're right, too much thinner can be a disaster.
Take care and I appreicate your help.Approve [^]

Alcohol will work for thinning Future, but it does funky things to it and it's a bit tough to clean up sometimes.

The Tamiya thinner has a high alcohol content, but hopefully there's enuff other stuff in there that will counteract any bad effects.
